    Who cares, someone bought it! :)

    Your sig should read "2006 I wish for an Audi S3"

    I'm not being funny I'm currently on a mission to correct everyones spelling and grammar. This country is going to the dogs!
    Correct use of grammar, spelling and punctuation costs nothing.

    Yes, use a capital when starting a sentence and some punctuation would be nice!

    That's another detention for you my lad.

    Should be 'you are' which gets abbreviated to you're as opposed to 'your'

    If we're going to get anal about this, then the Sport in your sig should be capitalised as it is the model name of the car you had.


    By the way, I've looked and looked but I can't find Rarrr! in the dictionary.

    Sig? What it that short for? Signature. Which either could not be spelt correctly or to lazy to type it in full...seeing as we are being anal...I also was under the impression that the expression is "going to pot", I may be wrong on this one though....

    Stupid boy, there should be no apostrophe!

    Admittedly it is bad use of a pronoun to infer the plural in that way...

    Detention for you as well!

    Ahem...

    "No apostrophe is used in the following possessive pronouns and adjectives: yours, his, hers, ours, its, theirs, and whose. [...] All other possessive pronouns ending in s do take an apostrophe: one’s; everyone’s; somebody’s, nobody else’s, etc." (from Wikipedia - I know it's a **** source but it's correct)

    Stupid I may be, but correct I am also :blow:

    Maybe not batwad...

    As the everyones is referring to two items, correct me if i'm wrong, but shouldn't the apostrophe be after the 's' as in everyones' .... ?

    Not quite, TQS. Although "everyone" is a singular pronoun, it refers to an indefinite number of people (or persons, but let's not get into that debate :shutup2:). In this respect it behaves in the same way as "group" (e.g.: "the group's opinion is blah", "the group is small").

    The difference here though, and I might be wrong on this occasion as I don't have my trusty OED to hand, is that "everyone" is an uncountable pronoun and as such cannot be pluralised. "Group" can, of course (e.g.: "several groups performed on Top Of The Pops"). If it could be pluralised the following sentence would be grammatically correct: "everyones are big and hairy" :uhm: Also, you would never say "the everyone" or "two everyones" so it must be uncountable.

    I love languages and could go on all day but would probably bore everyone stupid. So to lighten the mood: :blackrs4: :thrashi: :sos: :Flush:

    Haha this poor guys thread has been molested for long enough.
    The RS3 badge is just a badge that he probably bought off ebay, means nothing.

    (I even stopped to think if "guys" had an apostrophe then thanks to the previous ranting lol )

    I like the way some of the adverts for these badges on ebay say original RS3 badges, where do these come from to be original?

    When did Audi build an RS3???

    :lmfao: Excellent!

    Meanwhile, back at the ranch.......

    I can't stand 'add-on' badges! :asskicking: The worst are the real 'bleu-fromage' ridden cavalier's (and the likes) that have a whole plethora of badges stuck all over the proverbial 'shop'!

    I'm bound to have made an arse of my grammer/spelling in there somewhere! :readit:
